“Nice hotel”
Reviewed 6 January 2014

Nice hotel. Good location. Pleasant and friendly staff. Has vaffels and also evening meal for free included in the price. They have parking as well, but you have to pay extra. What is there not to like?

Great Place to stay if you are looking for a quiet place With friendly staff.
Offers a evening buffet free of charge, convinient if you want to spend the night at the hotel. Right in the middle of the town.

Very friendly staff, great breakfast, good coffee. Even though we had to leave before breakfast opened, the staff offered to make us breakfast anyway. Excellent!

Sadly, some litter under the bed in my room.

I was pleased with my stay at the Clarion Collection Hotel. The staff was first-rate. Super friendly and helpful. The room was fine, although it overlooked the parking lot of a large postal processing unit and the noisy trucks went late into the night and started early in the morning (the mail must keep moving after all).

The hotel did provide a decent evening buffet which is extremely rare in Norway and helps to save on the cost of an *always* expensive Norwegian dinner.

Great location, too. Walking distance to the centre of town as well as the Olympic Museum. The Clarion Collection Hotel is definitely worth a visit.

Room Tip: Avoid rooms overlooking the postal processing outlet parking lot. Very noisy with all the delivery...

After six hotels in Norway in ten days, I can say that they're all pretty much the same. This hotel, as several people remarked about other hotels in Lillehammer, looks like it was built for the Olympics in '94 and hasn't had much done to it since.

The room was at the small end of the spectrum, adequate but small, and unremarkable. The decor being simple and contemporary didn't show its age unless you looked closely. It had the inevitable heated bathroom floor and a tight shower stall. There was no safe but it did have a minibar/fridge. They have a very sad fitness room with a couple of treadmills.

The best part of the hotel was the receptionist, Åse. She speaks perfect English and is charming and helpful. She really made our stay. The breakfast and (included) dinner buffets were both wonderful and ample. All the usual suspects - herring, fish cakes, cold cuts, pâté, salads and bread - were there. A whole, perfectly baked salmon and an apparently typical meat and vegetable stew came with dinner and a delicious raspberry jelly with fresh raspberries and cream for dessert.

One slight irritant is that they charge NOK 120 (about $25.00) per day for parking. I noticed that several other local hotels provide free parking or parking for a fair amount less.

Don't go to Lillehammer - or, for that matter, anywhere else in Norway - expecting to find the Ritz. Having said that, these hotels are quite adequate.

If You plan to go to Lillehammer, You definitly should choose this hotel ! The staff are very helpsome and friendly and the location is perfect. Our room was clean, and had a OK size.
The bed was good and soft as they usulaly are in Norway. We enjoyed the breakfast and the evening-meal, wich is special for this hotel. If You want, you can also have a delicious fresh fried wafer and coffe earlier in the evening. When we are traveling to Lillehammer next time, we will surly choose Hotel Hammer !
